Smart decision avoiding big spending this winter. Cano is going to demand a huge payday soon.

I think they can afford it. They just want to cut payroll. I'm sure they are going to want to resign Cano and that's going to take some money.

They had made it pretty clear that they want to get below the luxury tax in 2 years. I think they want to be at $189 mil. One thing we know for sure, at any time they can go out and buy any player. I hope that changes gauging from the 100's of empty seats behind home plate.

It's a face saving move. Upton wants to be a Phillie.

How do you know that? Is that coming from the same place as FF having been pulled alot thus avoiding blown saves?

How many professional baseball people (front office, retired players, broadcasters, other media) do you talk baseball with?

That's impossible. I will believe it when they DONT sign Hamilton for $180 million.

They had to cut payroll. The team generates revenue, but not enough to pay the team's debt.

Through my AA network, I speak pretty regularly with two retired players, three writers/broadcasters, a couple of scouts, and someone who works for the organization, but not in player personnel. One of my best friends also has a son who dates one of the Mets on air personalities who I run into occasionally at social functions.
